andquot;I was instantly captivated by Brooklyn Street Style. Sacharow and Dahl offer a thorough understanding of Brooklynitesandrsquo; flair for collaging vintage, high-end, and everyday fashion to create bold, individualistic styles. The gorgeous, pattern-rich photographs and lively text make it hard to look away, and you donandrsquo;t have to be a fashion person to gain valuable tips from them. Brooklyn Street Style is as much about people and personalities as it is about clothing.andquot;
Brooklyn style is edgy, creative, and often localized by neighborhood. Itandrsquo;s not about chasing labels. It is stylish on its own terms, and it is dressing for life. Brooklyn Street Style explores what has made the borough a global trendsetter through more than 200 striking street-style photographs, as well as style advice from a host of Brooklyn tastemakers. This diverse crew of notable women in the design, fashion, food, and entertainment worlds includes style expert Mary Alice Stephenson, chef Leslie Parks, Girls costume designer Jenn Rogien, and award-winning actor and playwright Eisa Davis. Chapters distill trendsandmdash;from the maker movement to eco-conscious fashionandmdash;and highlight some of the most exciting designers and boutiques. For both visitors and Brooklynites alike, the guide concludes with a detailed neighborhood-by-neighborhood listing of essential shops, markets, restaurants, and bars.
